Transition Education Program

Concepts

  • Incarceration is a price one must pay for violating society's rules.
  • The achievement of positive and permanent change requires the involvement of the corrections system, education, community, and public resources.
  • Positive changes depend on a combination of program components begun during incarceration and continued in the community upon the offender's release.

Philosophy

  • Assess, understand, and address dysfunctional criminal thinking.
  • Provide curricula choices that are developmentally appropriate, self-selected, and interdependent.
  • Use incarceration as an opportunity to equip the offender with the behavior, knowledge, and skills needed to reenter society as a productive member.
  • Apply the correct and timely interventions, education, and productive work that will provide offenders with multiple opportunities for success.
